Show Up For Yourself: A Guide to Inner Growth and Awareness by Janet Philbin is an uplifting and encouraging book that can be used as a guide for inner awareness, growth, and becoming as you step forward to show up as you. The framework in the book tells how you can show up each and every day and bring joy, balance, and peace into your life. The healing process is a journey and Janet makes you understand how healing is a spiral that expands upward and round, which makes you touch the same points multiple times. The book will help heal your inner child and give you a new perspective on how to look at your pain and heal so that the true self will emerge. This is a fascinating trip into the self, into the heart, to look at the parts that need love, compassion, and healing, and to learn to give yourself what you give others easily.

Janet Philbin shares multiple cases and stories for you to connect better with her words, and there is also a mention of meditation, chakras, and the importance of both Western psychology and Eastern philosophy when it comes to healing. You will understand what healing is, how the inner child develops, the false self, ego, and the steps to heal the pain of your inner child so that you can finally become the light you are meant to be. The step-by-step guide to healing helps to prioritize and give attention to areas that require love and healing. Show Up For Yourself will help you to reconnect with your true self and become the captain of your ship. I personally believe all relationships are transitory and the most important relationship you can have is with your own self. I like the manner in which the author stresses that topic and helps you understand the importance of being connected with you, first and foremost. The book has gifts, lessons, the soul's yearning to grow and understand the depths of pain and celebrate the joy. The author's transformative journey is indeed an inspiration and encouragement to heal the pain of the past so the present and future are full of emotional wholeness.
